In for something fun? Don’t want to touch your stove? Here’s a cool appetizer dish for you: smoke salmon avocado rolls, the low carb and fulfilling way. Don’t care about the carb/calories? Well, it doesn’t matter, this roll look beautiful and is delicious with just a bit of everything. You could make it exactly like the recipe attached below, or customize your veggies and/or wrapper too.
Here’s the story (my rant actually). I’ve been constantly looking for new ways to cook/make meal that fit into my carb ‘diet’, and this came through my mind. I mean, I love sushi and all type of rolls too. One day I decide to try wrapping my roll without the ‘carb’ part. There, I found that I’m out of Nori, but luckily I have some rice paper on hand. Add in some carrot, cucumber, lecture or whatever veggies you have, and voila! A few drop of vinaigrette or just a vinegar-oil-black pepper mixture would do the finishing touch
I chose avocado mainly due to its creamy, buttery and fulfilling characteristics. I mean, it make you fill full for long time (cough * diet*) and healthy with all vitamins/fiber too. Pick an almost ripen avocado and slice it up, shall we?!!
